20 young people coming from Iceland, Italy, Poland, and Turkey will live together
for 13 days experiencing and learning ways to make art accessible to all, included
persons with disabilities.
The main project’s goal is to foster among all participants the firm belief that
access to culture is an essential right of all European citizens, and more generally
for everyone, despite any kind of disability.
The project is based on the idea that culture plays an important role in the life of
every person and that art and culture could be a powerful tool to strengthen the
sense of cohesiveness, citizenship and equality.
Ensuring effective access to and participation in cultural activities for all is an
essential dimension of promoting an inclusive society and overcoming
discrimination, prejudice and stereotypes.
The project aims to raise the young European citizens’ awareness and
understanding about EU citizens’ cultural rights and universal values as equality
and tolerance, with a focus on cultural rights of persons with disabilities.
To increase awareness of the importance of cultural accessibility in EU
policies and practices in order to foster a more inclusive society.
To empower young people to take action against social and cultural
exclusion, especially through art and culture.
To facilitate reflection on negative attitudes, discrimination and barriers to
culture experiences experienced by persons with disabilities.
To explore different activities and strategies to use culture and art as a way
to encourage participation and to enhance and foster the integration of
persons with disabilities in mainstream society.
To stimulate the participants to act as multipliers in their own organization
To develop new partnerships in the field of cultural accessibility in Europe
and YiA area countries.
